3. Head to Nanxiang Station
Xiaolongbao here in Nanxiang are served in bamboo steaming basket. Steaming hot and perfectly shaped unlike the ones for take out at Yuyuan Garden where there's no bothering if the dumplings are out of shape when tossed into Styrofoams.
Our first xiaolongbao experience in Yuyuan Garden was our referrence. There seem to be no difference in taste at first bite but you can notice the distinction when you start chewing. There seem to be more sophistication in their recipe. It's multi-layers of flavor. And the meat seem more tasty as well. To be honest, I didn't enjoy our first xiaolongbao experience in Shanghai. Medyo nasuya ako but this one, I vigorously ate one piece after another ---all 10 pcs while my wife took care of the rest. We resisted not ordering another set. Small pieces but quite filling actually. No need for rice.
We flew in Shanghai via
AirAsia Zest which flies daily to Pudong International Airport.
